I like it when he says that he needed to smooth something. So he runs it
through that enormous belt sander he has. Ya know, the one big enough to
run a table top through it.
I mean, it would be an incredible luxury to just have the space that monster
occupies, let alone the enormous sander.
Very straight forward, use the services of a local drum sander.
The guy I ue has a 48" wide, 75HP, 3-grit machine complete with a 20HP
bag house dust collector.
You get a lot of sanding done for $25.(About 20 minutes)
I blank out all my tops with 7/8" stock then sand to 3.4" after
Keeps life simple that way.
No it is like the 95% of NASCAR fans that watch a NASCAR race hoping for
their favorite driver to win and just itching to see the inevitable crashes.
You don't know exactly when but you do know you are going to see a NASCAR
crash/Woodwright guy cut his finger.
The camera definitely distorts reality. Roy's hands look even more beat up
in person than they do on the air... On air it is only the most obvious
wounds and scars that are evident but in person the old scars are layered.
In person his suspenders and clothes are faded and his hat is frayed but on
the monitor the suspenders look bright red and his hat looks fine. The
camera does not distort his wit though!
That said, maybe Norm doesn't really use all that many brads and the
Timesaver isn't nearly as big as it appears on the monitor due to focal
plane flattening by the camera?
That's going too far the other way, I don't have time to do everything the
hard way with crude tools. I like power where it can save some heavy labor
and some hand where they can do the fine work. By the way, have you noticed
his hands are covered with band-aids, bandages, blackened finger nails and
other wounds from his tools.
No kidding, have you seen that cordless drill that he uses on his show every
time? One day maybe I'll be able to get rid of this hand crank drill I have
been using. ;~)
Different strokes for different folks. Personally I would want to graduate
to the next level after a period of time.
